There is no installing with Netmeter it's just a standalone .exe file.

Once you've run that it should come up with a little graph on screen and also an icon down on the Taskbar which when you right click let's you change options (one of which is to make the app start when Windows 7 Starts). I have it running on Windows 7 Home Premium x64, so it should be okay.

Thanks. I remembered Wireshark from my CCNA course and it is now installed on my PC. Sadly whenever my PC shuts down or goes into sleep mode, the network record is lost. Do you happen to know any way you can let Wireshark capture packets whenever your PC is turned on so you can make monthly usage reports precisely?

There may be a way but I can't say for sure what that is. You might try turning off sleep for your network adaptor in power settings.
